Mod Sun The Basement - Columbus, OH Sunday, November 20, 2016; Doors open at 6:00 PM $13.00 Advance / $15.00 Day of Show General Admission - All Ages A Minnesota native, Mod grew up in a household that played everything from Bob Dylan to Prince, and that eclectic foundation has informed his musical journey. He started playing drums at age 13, and by 16, he began touring with a few bands, including the successful rock group Four Letter Lie. But his heart told him to go after something else. I was in a state of comfort, touring and in a band, and I decided I wanted to totally change it up and do something I believed in, the 29-year-old remembers. So he gave up that steady gig to pick up the mic. Mod wrote his first song at age 19, and hasn't looked back since. Over the last eight years, he has released six mixtapes and three EPs. He has collaborated with artists including Schoolboy Q, Nipsey Hussle and G-Eazy, and earned a spot as one of sixteen independent artists from around the world competing for the cover of Rolling Stone in 2011. Now, the focus is again squarely on the music. He's built plenty of momentum over the last year, thanks to videos for tracks like My Hippy, Free Love and Mushrooms. And now, Mod is getting ready to deliver his Friend Base - because he has no fans, only friends - his debut album is out now, through Rostrum Records.
